Angelicus Chianti 2003 wine review by (PB)

I bought this on a lark and had it with veal strips tied in a knot, fried fennel with parmesan, and pasta with sage butter. Wow!

This light red wine from Tuscany has a fragrant almost floral bouquet with candied notes, chocolate, pipe tobacco, cherries and jasmine. Seriously; everything quite identifiable all up front. In the mouth there is solid Sangiovese flavors, in this nicely made wine and a rigid tannic backbone gives this inexpensive ($10) creation a clean, green, finish of gentle fruit. Raise a glass!
